Error importing work item type definition: The given key was not present in the dictionary

Filed under: TFS — kevinhick @ 9:09 am

In a follow up to my previous post, if you receive this error: "The given key was not present in the dictionary" when you upload the work item type, you may have left a reference to a field that you’ve now removed, in a rule on another field, e.g.

<!– Commenting out this field will result in an error if the rule below is not removed
<FIELD type="String" name="Removed Field" refname="Custom.RemovedField">
   
<HELPTEXT>The Quality Center Defect ID</HELPTEXT>
</FIELD>
–>

<FIELD type="String" name="Field that references the one above" refname="Custom.ReferencingField">
   
<WHENNOT field="Custom.RemovedField" value="Deleted"><!–This refers to a field that no longer exists –>
       
<REQUIRED />
   
</WHENNOT>
</FIELD>
